Buy a cleaning business for less than $40,000

If you’re looking for a low level investment, you can buy a cleaning business for less than $50,000.

If you’re looking for almost endless customer potential, oven-cleaning has to come up high on your list; because every householder is a potential client.

And while you’ll have to be prepared to get your hands dirty, sprucing up the cooker after your customers have cooked up a storm is a whole lot easier with the right products to hand.

When you invest in a franchise you’ll have access to top cleaning products that have been tried and tested. You will be following processes and procedures already established that will make you an effective operator.

With less time figuring out which cleaning product to buy, and how to best manage the process from enquiry to invoicing, you’ll have more time to spend on building your business.

And an oven-cleaning business, while it’s a niche operation, isn’t limited to transforming a fat-splattered oven into a shining, good as new cooker. Blackened barbecues, overcooked microwaves, range cookers are also services franchisees can offer.


Capital investment is $39,500 +GST and franchisees sign up for one five year term with a second optional term.

The business began in the UK in 1994 and has spread internationally, franchising in 2006.

The franchisor points to comprehensive training and a refined business model as advantages that come with the brand. Franchisees work within a defined geographical territory, to their own flexible hours.

This business is focusing on expansion in New South Wales. Incoming franchisees can expect a two-week training period, an initial guaranteed income for a limited period, and head office management of bookings.

It will cost a minimum of $25,000 to buy a franchise.
